Been unemployed for almost a year despite aggressively looking for a job (based in APAC region). Just because I worked at Facebook, ppl think I have it easy and shouldn’t worry but with all the visa restrictions before and everything, it’s so hard to find a job. I’m srsly battling anxiety everyday in this job search process. Is there even light at the end of the tunnel? Seems like a long tunnel right now

Sending you empathy and hope 🤗 there is light at the tunnel!

Year-long job hunts are unfortunately not that uncommon, even in specialized fields! Even if companies/recruiters have not yet caught up to the fact that employment gaps right now are the norm, you are not alone - if you have the funds to keep going, don't stress, you are doing well, you got this! Make sure you are staying on top of your budget (I know how anxiety reduces the mental energy to spend on things - if money is tight, put your mental energy towards your budget first). You will be ok!!!
